Take Part in the Teal Pumpkin Project for Treats without Tricks

Halloween brings fear not just because of the ghost and goblins, but also because of food allergies. Think about it – Halloween treats like chocolate can contain anything from milk, nuts, eggs, soy, to wheat. If you have a child allergic to any of these ingredients then a lot of extra caution needs to be taken. To ease the uneasiness of Halloween trick or treating for parents and kids with food allergies the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) organization is launching again this year the Teal Pumpkin Project.

The Teal Pumpkin Project encourages people to place a teal-painted pumpkin outside their door and to post flyers provided by FARE (available online) to indicate that the Halloween treat given is non-food related, like stickers, toys, etc.

Food allergies can be life-threatening. Take part is ensuring kids enjoy treats without tricks this Halloween season!

Let us know if you’ll participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project and what non-food treat you’ll be handing out!
